Due to a technical setback, WITHIN TEMPTATION have rescheduled The Aftermath: A Show In a Virtual Reality from July 8 and July 9 to one week later. The online show will now take place on July 15 and July 16.
“You all know we are absolute heroes in rescheduling dates and now we’ve reached a new milestone: our shortest postponement in our career so far,” says Sharon den Adel. “We’re working very hard on our VR-event, but as it’s something we’ve never done before – and definitely something you have never SEEN before — we sometimes experience a few hiccups in the process that are completely new to us and the crew.”
She continues, “To smooth everything out and create the best possible, spectacular, and mythical experience for you, we’ve decided to postpone The Aftermath – A Show In a Virtual Reality to July 15 and 16. It’s only one week and we know that it’ll be worth the short wait. We can’t wait for you to see it. It’s going to be a show to remember!”

Tickets purchased for the original dates are automatically valid for the new dates. Fans who are not available to view the show on the new dates are able to re-watch the show for 48 hours after.

Frontwoman Sharon Den Adel comments: “During the whole pandemic, we weren’t keen on doing a livestream. The magic of seeing and hearing a band perform live — combined with the energy of the crowd — is something you cannot simply recreate with a livestream. So, for a long time we were clueless. One thing we knew for sure: we would not compromise on a livestream if we could offer something out of the ordinary, something jaw-dropping, intriguing, spectacular and mythical! Then we found it: a world that we could shape into our wildest fantasies and in which we, as a band, could perform while still maintaining the dynamics and magic of our traditional live show. We are absolutely thrilled to invite you to ‘Within Temptation: The Aftermath – A Show In A Virtual Reality’. A show that takes place in different scenes of a post-apocalyptic world, in which we are witness of the aftermath of destruction of mankind. A world in which it is unknown if anyone or anything of the human race survived. It is a search for answers — about both its becoming as well as its legacy.”

“The Aftermath” is a show fueled by bleeding-edge technology that enables the band to do a performance that’s out of this world — literally! In this one-hour show, WITHIN TEMPTATION will play a variety of newer and older songs in four different worlds, that interact with both the band and the music. Expect guest singers from all over the world to join the band on stage for striking duets in even more striking settings.

With this show, WITHIN TEMPTATION builds a bridge between the now and the next time the band will be able to play again.

“We are absolutely gutted that the ‘Worlds Collide’ tour has been pushed back again and we cannot perform live in the same venue as our fans,” the band says. “With this digital show, we hope that the fans can still feel our energy, our love for — and above all: our passion for music. Take care and we hope to see you on July 8 or July 9.”
